If you own or manage a commercial building or facility, you have several regular tasks to keep an eye on. These range from basic HVAC and plumbing services to handing utility payments and other expenses, and also may feature the occasional electrical issue that crops up.
At Orange Electric, we’re proud to offer a comprehensive range of commercial electrician services for our Utah clients. From big jobs like installing new systems to simpler tasks like running routine maintenance and upkeep, our electricians are here to keep your facility both safe and operating at optimal capacity when it comes to power. Let’s take a quick look at why commercial electrical maintenance is so important, and what you’re risking if you attempt to go the cheap route and avoid it.
Basics and Goals of Commercial Electrical Maintenance
Commercial electrical maintenance is a broad term, one that covers several specific areas and tasks that may be performed. Areas handled include both indoor and outdoor lighting, wiring, signage, outlet upkeep and several others. Through a variety of inspections, clean-outs and performance evaluations, we’ll keep your system running at peak levels consistently.
Put another way, our commercial electrical maintenance focuses on a few specific goals for your facility:
- Avoiding any future complications based on a faulty or worn-down system.
- Locating, assessing and reducing any risks for electrical fires, shocks or even electrocution.
- Improving several areas of electrical safety, from day-to-day considerations to long-term issues.
- Limiting the future need for major, high-cost repairs – repairs that can generally be avoided through our much more affordable maintenance programs.
- Increasing the efficiency and lifespan of various electrical systems and building appliances.
- Optimizing energy use and reducing any waste caused by your facility.
Is it Truly Necessary?
Some building owners or managers might be thinking something like this at this point: “It’s been years since my building had even a minor electrical issue – do I really need to pay for commercial electrical maintenance if nothing is wrong?”
Simply put: Yes, absolutely. Electrical systems will not last forever under any circumstances, and just because you’ve gone a few years without any issues doesn’t mean they can’t crop up tomorrow. Good business owners are those who take the time to prevent possible future issues, rather than waiting for them to happen and then shouldering the burden for a much larger cost and high-hassle repair. And the longer you go without routine maintenance, the greater your risk for issues that build up over time, such as power surge issues for instance. It’s better to be safe than sorry, as they say, and this phrase applies in spades to the electrical world.
